- All Congress topics have been changed to resolutions (all topics are the same, but they are no longer bills).


We are pleased to announce our summer tournament event: The Sunshine In My Pocket 2. This tournament will resemble our past tournaments, offering both traditional speech and debate events along with new non-traditional events. We will have four age groups: Little Orators (grades K-3rd), Elementary School (grades 3-5), Middle School (grades 6-8), and High School (grades 9-12). 

We are taking notes from our friends at the Orator's Cup and building in a judges assignment time period into our schedule to ensure a smoother and more on-time tournament. 

The theme of this tournament will be Inclusion: "Creating a World Where Everyone Belongs." 

Please fully read the event rules and discriptions.
